In Topic: ANNOYING TDCI JUDDER IN 4TH GEAR!! HELP

29 January 2009 - 05:59 PM

When I went for test drives, I test drove a diesel instead of the one I eventually got (was persuaded by the salesman I wouldn't get any benifit of a diesel, I wasn't complaining as it saved me 2k :lol: ) and was getting judder in 4th gear, basically he told me I was changing up too early and you need change gear later in a diesel, so pribably only why your judder occures in 4th gear at low revs.


I wish it was that simple mate, Buts its definately more serious that!! Everything is point to a fuel starvation issue

this is a lean burn problem and occures when the egr valve opens allowing gases into the system
One way to check if it's the EGR, unplug the vacuum hose, plug the hose, then drive it, but only to check if this cures the problem. i have known this problem be cured by using higher octain petrol (91 ron) which takes away the lean burn problem.



Its not a petrol its a diesel tho mate so im unsure if that is the problem???
